Russia - Beet sugar output seen at 4.0-4.2 mln t in 2012/13


Russia's sugar beet harvest in 2013 may exceed 36.0 mln tonnes, ensuring the manufacture of 4.0-4.2 mln tonnes of beet white sugar in 2013/14, the Russian Sugar Producers Union said.

It added that almost all beet growing areas received sufficient rainfall, which may enable yields to reach the 2012 level of 40 tonnes per ha.
